s/o John W & FM Skinner

STRUCK BY TRAIN - Almost at his own door Roy Skinner, son of ex-county Commissioner John W. Skinner, had his life snuffed out by an extra westbound freight last Thursday night at Stockwell. The train was running on passenger train No 3's time, which is due to arrive here at 7:35 o’clock and was running about thirty-five miles an hour. Frank Murphy was engineer on engine 439, which was pulling the train, and A. R. Rice was the fireman. The accident happened at the crossing at the depot. Young Skinner was in company with Lee Morrison and had gone down town after supper. He had returned to the station with his companion to see the Indianapolis plug depart. While at the depot he decided to attend the protracted meeting at the Christian church at Stockwell. Morrison crossed the track just in front of the freight train and Skinner was a short distance behind his companion and was struck by the train.
